Jubilation, Stardust and Banksy

Is there anything more British than Her Royal Highness, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust and street artist Banksy? Combined? I think not.

We ARE amused. :)


Snapshots: Neophyte

A collection of photos from my neighbourhood jaunts. And me… working out the specifics of aperture and focal length and shutter speed. I’m leaving white balance, EV exposure values and a whole slew of other aspects out of the equation for now! I enjoy the act more than anything. I love walking around and seeing the world through a different lens (pun intended). I notice so much more with a camera in hand! Is that strange?

And by the way… How did anyone learn photography before digital SLR’s?!

Deconstructive Art

There’s graffiti and then there’s Wall Art. Alexandre Farto (aka VHILS) is most definitely an artist of walls. His technique: part archeology, part graphic artistry, part stonemasonry. His toolbox: pneumatic drills, chisels and hammers. He carves into walls, revealing layers of brick, concrete and plaster. Brilliant. Beautiful.

Next time you see some graffiti in your city, take a closer look. You may find a true artist with a clear voice and a novel process in delivering that message. Click here for more…
